last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no
the president of the united states who signed his initials saying, nfl fans on both sides of the aisle, hope the refs lockout is settled soon. the settlement became a bipartisan issue and it brought out none other than packers' fan and union busting wisconsin governor, scott walker, who two weeks ago had nearly all of his infamous anti-collective bargaining law struck down by a wisconsin judge. he chimed in on twitter writing after catching a few hours of sleep, the packers game is still painful, #returntherealrefs. mitt romney chimed in saying, i'd sure like to see some experienced referees. with nfl experience come back out to the nfl playing fields. that was after his running mate, paul ryan, also of wisconsin, used the monday night football debacle as a convenient political metaphor. >> did you watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. you know what? it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it is time to get out. >>> all of the pressure and not necessarily from politicians helped bring about a deal bet

back and end up a two-term president of the united states. i love that you were there and got the food. >>> next question. when, however, not with the longest speech, but the longest running convention in history? and how many days did it last? the longest running convention in history? all right. i'm going to give it to you. 1924's democratic national convention. it lasted 16 days. took 103 ballots, there were first fights on the floor, and a big part of the problem was there was a catholic contingency and a ku klux klan contingency. >> wasn't that first one they ever did on radio too, wasn't it? >> oh. actually i think it was. there is another one coming up. i won't take the nerd -- no, i won't take it. i have the answer if front of me. okay, i know, i know. this one will be a -- i'll give you a fill in the blanks for this one. the keynote speaker, ann richards, at the time the texas state treasurer, and she said this about george h.w. bush. she said, poor george. he can't help it. he was born with -- >> a silver spoon in his mouth. silver spoon in his mouth. >> close. you have the o
